Ginetta G55 GT4 Accepted for 2018 TA3 Competition
December 19, 2017
TEAM NEWS - The Ginetta G55 GT4 has gotten better. Yes, really. Not only is the Ginetta G55 GT4 one of the most successful GT4 cars on the market, but now you get even more ‘bang for your buck’ as it’s been accepted into the 2018 Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli.
Our good friend Adolpho Rossi has been working his socks off in his role as Ginetta’s East Coast distributer, and yesterday secured homologations for the G55 GT4 in the series’ TA3 Class. This adds yet another series to the roster of accepted G55 GT4 entries in the USA, which already boasts the Pirelli World Challenge, NASA and FARA championships.
The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli is marketed as; ‘America’s Road Racing Series’ and dates back to 1966, making it almost as old as Ginetta itself (did we mention we turn 60 next year?) The series is split across four classes; TA, TA2, TA3 and TA4 with grids of 70 plus cars. If that wasn’t enough, the championship takes in some of the USA’s most iconic circuits, including Sebring, Homestead-Miami, Indianapolis, Road America, Watkins Glen, Circuit Of The Americas and Daytona International Speedway, so we know it’s going to be one heck of a ride.
This latest news continues our international expansion, and you only need to look at the G55 GT4’s results to know why. A winner on the international stage, in the four years since the G55 GT4 car replaced the G50 GT4 in 2014, the Yorkshire marque has taken around 100 wins in some of the globe’s biggest GT4 race series.
We’ve stood on the top step at the Dubai 24 Hours five times in six years and the Mugello 12 Hours three times in three years. Not only that, but the car claimed a first and third in class on its Motul Sepang 12 Hours debut last season, two wins in the TCE series and class victory in the Euro GT4 Southern Cup. A Ginetta GT4 has also won British GT seven times in the past 10 years.
